Before We Say Goodbye by Gabriella Ambrosio

I could not put this book down until I had finished it.
I think Vere Cohen-Barzilay, Director of Communications and Publications, Amnesty International Israel sums this book up very well she says:
" Before We Say Goodbys gives us a rare look and a wonderful opportunity to get to know reality from the birds-eye view, with all its complexity and many faces. It does not embellish it. It does not blame or judge, nor does it get tangled in political accusations of who is better off or who is hurting more. It mourns, it despairs and it hurts, but it is brutally honest. And that is where the importance lies. That is where it magic lies."
I found this book tragic, powerful and an insight into the world of a girl who has accepted her destiny to be a suicide bomber.
A must read.
